Welcome to the JMES Library Media Center!


My name is Kelly Keruskin (Ms. K.) and I am the library media specialist for the Jefferson-Morgan Elementary School.  I am extremely proud to say that my entire primary and secondary educational career was realized here at Jefferson-Morgan with my graduation in 1986.  I received my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Duquesne University and my master’s degree in Library Science from Clarion University.



My goals as the JMES library media specialist are to: 

  • instill the love of reading and learning in our students. 
  • collaborate with teachers, administrators, and staff to develop and teach lessons that support the regular classroom curricula for grades Pre-K through 6. 
  • collaborate with teachers, administrators , and staff to develop curricular content that integrates library media and technology skills. 
  • maintain an awareness of professional trends and emerging technologies for classroom, colleague, and student use. 
  • ensure that a full range of information resources are available to support and promote student learning. 
  • evaluate, acquire, and promote information resources to meet the learning needs of our students. 
  • create lifelong, twenty-first century learners.


Library Schedule 

Students attend library classes one day per week and two times per week for one nine-week period each school year during which time, they are provided the opportunity to check out age-appropriate books that appeal to their interests and their educational needs.  Additionally, during each classroom session, students will participate in a lesson with a related activity/project designed to support/reinforce concepts presented in their regular classrooms.  


Grading Policy

Each nine-week period, students will receive a grade of O, S, N, or U.  Grades are based on a student’s ability to: 

  • participate in classroom discussions and activities. 
  • return library materials in a timely manner. 
  • complete library projects & activities.
